I love The Blues Brothers. Very Happy

The Martian was pretty boring to be honest.

HEARTS IN ATLANTIS - is a terrific film and surprising to see it only recieved 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Loosely based on a Stephen King novella it was criticized as being a "mood piece". I thought it contained many moods, with echoes of Dolores Claiborne and the Green Mile to name but two.
I was amused by the acting of the young Anton Yelchin - I kept thinking he looked so familiar, and I'd seen him in something before, but couldn't place it - then finding out he now plays Chekov in the Star Trek reboot films.
The DVD has a half-hour interview with Anthony Hopkins by the director of the film, Scott Hicks. Worth the price of the Disc in itself. And I also have the Hicks audio commentary to look forward to later on.

While checking the spelling of Chekov, saw this - Bugger - RIP Anton

Funny you should mention Anton Yelchin. He died in a freak accident involving his own car over the weekend. Crying or Very sad

Av, The Blues Brothers is an awesome movie. I need to check on whether I own a copy. I don't have a ton of DVDs, but that one ought to be in the collection.

Over the weekend, I watched "Wishful Drinking," Carrie Fisher's one-woman autobiographical show. (HBO released it under their "documentaries" label, which I think is stretching it. Laughing ) Some very funny lines. "If Paul Simon ever wants to write a song about you -- DO IT!" Laughing

Funny! Yeah absolutely. In the DVD interview with Anthony Hopkins, on playing his character Ted Brautigan, he spoke about his familiarity with psychic phenomena and synchronicity. He even said that while filming Hannibal he told someone he had always wanted to do a Stephen King story. Then later told someone else if given the choice his next project would involve Scott Hicks. Amazingly, when his agent called with the script for Hearts in Atlantis he said yes even without reading, he would do it.
I'd never heard of the film before or the Stephen King novella, just synchronicity is all.

Carrie (2013), starring Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Mortez.
It was OK. Some variation on Brian De Palma's 1976 film, but not a great deal. What did make this movie watchable was the young Ms Chloe. For me it's her voice; unbelievably sweet. I could listen to her for hours. And yet for a rising star of amazing talent she seems to be making lots of failed movies. But then as long as she has lots of lines to speak I'll be checking them out (:

Gattaca, starring Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, and Jude Law, is a surprisingly a terrific Sci-Fi movie. Relatively low budget, and very few locations in which this shoestring plot and story is acted out. But well worth seeing a man's dogged determination against all the odds.

Timothy Spall, as Mr. Turner. Quite boring really, if it weren't for some extraordinary shots from Mike Leigh. J M W Turner isn't the most comfortable of characters to engage with, as genius often is. But this is history and positively one for the DVD collection.

Just finished watching Blue Jasmine, starring Kate Blanchett.
I never believed it possible for an actress, any actress, to give such a protracted and hypnotic performance.

Also enjoyed seeing Sally Hawkins in action. What a sweetie!
Must check out, Happy-Go-Lucky, and, The Shape of Water, two of her other highly acclaimed films.

Kate Blanchett is an awesome actress and quite mesmerising on screen .. at least I find her so.

Im not familiar with Sally Hawkins .. did you see her in a movie or on an interview.

Sally Hawkins plays (Ginger) a grocery store gal and Cate Blanchett's (Jeanette/Jasmine) sister, the Park Avenue debutante.

Their acting/repartee is breath-taking.

Later tonight, will watch the Japanese film Casshern.

Escape from New York
Forgot just how good this John Carpenter movie is.
Lots of extras for afters on this special edition disc.

Predetor 2
Danny Glover as a maniac super cop - really enjoyed this sequel effort.

Hedwig and the angry inch
Was really enjoying the trash-rock Berliner razz. But knowing it was a gay transexual romp I watched this film only if there wasn't any sex scenes.
It only took 5 minutes until they were at it, and ... presto eject disc!

Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law
Shaggy and Scooby getting busted for possesion of weed gave a new meaning to zoinks and scooby snacks.
Daft and silly surrealist cartoons, with a few laughs thrown in ... meh

RED (2010) - Very watchable DC comics movie.
Bruce Willis plays the RED, (Retired, Extremely Dangerous) ex-CIA. Featuring a very old Ernest Borgnine as Henry the records keeper.

Solo
Enjoyed watching this more than seeing it in the cinema.
It would be nice if movies were kept under two hours for theatres and extended for DVD. I was able to pause the film to get some tea and one quarter portion of cake, something even Han and Chewie couldn't do they were having too much adventure.

Red Planet
With Val Kilmer and Tom Sizemore, the unlikly astronauts, has been on my favourite list. Not a great movie but does have a really terrific soundtrack.
